Summary Parenthood brings with it many responsibilities, and the way children are raised has evolved with rapid social change. This book looks at the changing roles of mothers and fathers; balancing work and family; gay parenting; teenage parents; sole parents and divorce; step-families and the reasons behind a decline in our birth rate - why are Australians choosing to have fewer, or even no, children?
